THE MARRIAGE BETWEEN THE TIME OF GOD AND THE TIME OF MAN

The Truth About God That Prayer Can\'t Amend

God's time is not ours, and our time is not His. God's ordained season gives birth to God's time while day and night give birth to (produce) man's time.

Except you can identify the season that is upon you, you can never know what time it is you are in the program of God for your life. The best thing to do so you don't allow impatience and worriedness to kill you before time is that be careful enough to understand the particular season that God has brought you to in the seasons of your life. Don't mind the season that others are, you can't use anyone's season and time to judge your own. Cashews and tomatoes don't have the same season. Human age has no primary/direct bearing or functional relationship with God’s time. Age is primarily a variable of man's things, calculations, and man’s time. God is not perturbed with age escalation nor ‘is not old enough syndrome’.

See what the Bible says, "TO EVERYTHING there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven: A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2, AMPC).

No man knows when he or she was born and when he will die. Yet, we could become so much in a hurry that we don't want to respect the season of planting and harvest in our lives. To some, as far as God is concerned in His program of life for their lives, while it was time for their age mates to reap some fruits, it was ordained for them to enter their planting seasons, but instead of busying themselves maximally with planting seeds, building and developing character, potentials, abilities, skills, and energy for the elaborate harvest ahead of them, in error and ignorance of Divine seasons, they are moved by self and societal judgment to compete with their contemporaries to start reaping a harvest of their lives that is not ready. And you see so many people in cat and rat races of life, struggling, and competing with people that are in their own harvest time.

The same way divine season and time played out in the life of Jesus, the Vine of which branches we are, our growth, prosperity, relevance, and Kingdom earthly impact in our generation have been fashioned into divine seasons and times for our manifestation.

Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. And [a]supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands and that He had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. (John 13:1-5.)

One thing that we saw that played out in the life of Jesus significantly, and Jesus never took for granted at any point in the race of life, was Divine seasons and timing. When it was time for Him to learn obedience and submission, He was not going about seeking disciples, when it was a time in His life to be led into the wilderness in preparation to face a crucial trial of His life, He was not going about performing miracles. He knew when it was time to be busy, rest, plant, reap, die, resurrect, and ascend back to heaven. So, Jesus was not at any time trying to reap when He was to develop capacity as a vessel that will fulfil the counsel of God for His life on the earth. This mind must be in us — in identifying Divine seasons and times of our lives. (See Luke 2:40; 46—47, John 12:23; 17:1, Mk. 14:41.)

Undoubtedly, when a man or woman is in his or her season, things that are meant to be done are done with so much ease because seasons are ushered in with Grace and life, they come upon every individual with enough Grace to function and possess in them maximally: planting; to plant very well, reaping; to reap an abundant harvest.

God is the commander of His seasons and times. We can't force them, we can own obey them, live in them and walk in them to profit from them. Are you struggling with the time you are? Are you thinking that your hope is lost? Are you thinking that what you hope for or expect to experience may never happen? All you need to do is to go back to God to understand the season that you are in, and the timing of events for you in the season of God for you. When you do this, you will effortlessly overcome your struggle within you, and with anyone, you will not complain, and there won't be any need to compete with anyone. It is according to season and time that has been designed for everyone.

The only marriage that exists between the time of God and our time, the time of man, is a man seeking to know the Divine Season that is upon him, and the set time of events heaven has proposed that his or her life is to showcase glory and influence upon the earth. Not with the intention to pray to change God’s intended time of program, or to amend God’s time, but to do the expected. Don't be too in hurry to want to pray-change yours, it can't amend, what is expected from us is obedience, submission, and alignment to His Will for us (willingly, patiently, and faithfully) awaiting and in His seasons and times. (See Daniel Ch 9, Ch10, Ch11, Ch12, Ch 12:13.)

Word of Confession: (Optional)

Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I have sinned against the LORD God - in the rebellion of my heart, I have disappointed your expectations on my life. I have fallen from Your grace and followed wrong influences around me. Today, I retrace my steps back to you - and I ask that in your mercy you accept me as your son and give to me (again) the promise of the Father - the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please, come and make my heart your home, and from there rule in the affairs of all men. In Jesus Name I have prayed.

Usually, whenever we are WALKING (making progress) we fall FORWARD, but whenever we are STANDING (maintaining status quo), we fall anyhow, anywhere and at any time!
